nearer to the truth, than ever it has yet been. I therefore, sit down with pleasure to this task, because I am persuaded it must give pleasure to others; and have, besides, this encouragement, that there are more things already publisht which may be of assistance to me in the following account, than perhaps there ever was of any one of our English writers, within so short a time after their decease. Beside what may be collected from several parts of his own works, Dr. Swift has himself given a sketch for his life to the thirty-third year of it, publisht by his relation, who is now in possession of his grandfather's estate in Herefordshire. The same gentleman has given us many particulars relating to that, and all the remaining part of his life. The Earl of Orrery has entered (I wish I could not add) too minutely and too unkindly into his character, in his Letters and the Observator on them has added several particulars, which his most familiar acquaintance with Dr. Swift (if the author be rightly guess'd at) must have given him more opportunities than almost any one, to observe, at least, during a considerable part of the doctor's life. Mrs. Pilkington, whose admiration of him, and the pleasure (perhaps the pride) she took in being admitted to his conversation, made her observe every little thing he did, and every word he said, has given us a picture of him in his domestic behaviour; which, as I have been assured by several persons who were very well acquainted with the doctor, is exactly like him. Mr. Hawksworth has written his life, in as exact and handsome a manner, as we had been before taught to expect from his pen; and there is another (said by the author of it, to be chiefly collected from my Lord Orrery), in the Lives of the English Poets, which I know not by what means, or rather by what blunder, they have chosen to attribute chiefly to a very unpromising name in the title-page. To what may be most to my purpose in all of these, I several of Swift's intimate friends and acquaintshall add some things which I have learnt from ance and with all these helps taken together, am in some hopes of giving a fuller and more expressive idea of one who was so serviceable a politician in the cause of his native country, so very excellent and humorous a writer, and so singular a
